In 2018, Apple launched three new smartphones: these successor models of the iPhone X have some innovations and improvements over the predecessor (as is to be expected).
Most noticeable is that the size has changed: the formerly largest iPhone (X at 5.8 inches) is now pretty much the smallest generation of the new iPhones...
Comparison of current iPhone top of the range models:
The iPhone models listed above do not have a Home button any more, this was discontinued after the iPhone 8.
Similar to iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max differ only slightly, mostly really in terms of their size and battery life.
With a screen size of 5.8 inches, the iPhone XS is one of the larger smartphones currently available, matching the size of its predecessor the X.
Only the iPhone XS Max is larger: The iPhone XS Max is the largest phone with a 6.5-inch screen diagonal that Apple has ever brought to the market. The two flagships of Apple feature 458 ppi - an even better display than the iPhone X.
Further changes to the previous model:
The iPhone XR complies with its technical software one-to-one models XS and XS Max. The slightly lower price compared to the other models is explained in the resolution of the LCD screen and in the camera. T
he iPhone XR has a screen diagonal of 6.1 inches, with a pixel density of 326 ppi is lower than the XS and XS Max. This is noticeable in the sharpness of the display.
In addition, this smartphone has only a camera lens and no dual camera. If you can live with the two drawbacks, get the iPhone XR - a cheaper smartphone, which is still technically up to date.
The "X" - 2017's top of the range iPhone - is still very popular: so you might not even need to buy the latest iPhone model as this one is still pretty good (and much, much cheaper). The only problem is that Apple craftily decided to stop making it.
The iPhone X stands out significantly from the other iPhone models bcause of its hardware... the device uses the modern OLED display technology, which in combination with HDR reproduces particularly strong colours and contrasts.
With HDR 10 and Dolby Vision, the display also meets current home theatre and entertainment technology standards.
The built-in dual camera is already used in the iPhone 8, but the iPhone X is perfected with an optical image stabiliser, which enhances the quality of photos and videos. The function of face recognition - called Apple FaceID - was used for the first time with the iPhone X in Apple's smartphone range. This unlocks the device via face recognition, quite obviously.
Special features at a glance of the iPhone X:
With the iPhone 8, the design doesn't really vary much, and clearly is based on the familiar design of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 7. Only the back of aluminum is replaced by extra-strong glass.
In addition, the iPhone 8 with Qi technology allows wireless battery charging.
Specifically, iPhone 8 is characterised by the following features:
The direct predecessor iPhone 7 model differs here, as Apple have generously given the "8" an improved display with True Tone technology and a more powerful processor, including increased graphics performance again over the previous model.
The superior camera quality of the Apple iPhone contributed essentially to the success that it had in earlier years. All models that came out either during the 2017 or 2018 models feature a 12 megapixel camera that captures 4K and 1080p video at 30 or 60 frames per second (FPS).
The iPhone 8 Plus and the X and XS models are equipped with optical zoom and 10x digital zoom. In the iPhone 8, however, there is only one main camera with digital zoom, while the iPhone XR has a fivefold optical zoom.
